The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruled that Christian schools cannot be deprived of receiving school aid. The court destroyed the religious school public aid ban and cemented President Trump’s goal to provide educational freedom and school choice for millions of black and minority students and their parents in 2016. In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court’s newest appointees, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, cemented President Trump’s promise and #SchoolChoicefreedomday was born!

The court majority voted to tell liberals and public education unions that children’s lives matter and to “Shut Yo’ Mouth!" The public liberal shackles on educational freedom will ignite an explosion of untold creativity and accomplishment throughout urban neighborhoods and once educationally broken spirits and homes.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Frederick Douglass

Civil rights for black and minority students has been denied for nearly a century and a half, because liberals in Democrat run cities denied black parents’ access to public money that would allow them to send their child to a Christian or religious school for an opportunity for a better education. Their school choice was dead on arrival until #SchoolChoicefreedomday, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue that religious schools can qualify for a state tax credit program even if the state constitution explicitly bans public aid to religious entities.

For tens if not hundreds of thousands of black and brown families who have seen their precious children’s educational civil rights jailed and their futures DOA, Trump’s Supreme Court ruled never again.

Now, minority and disadvantaged children can take advantage of educational opportunities that will allow them to prosper. Parents can now take advantage of a public scholarship program to send their children to religious schools. Religious discrimination on this issue has been clear.

Liberals and media pundits have literally handcuffed black and brown poor parents who can now celebrate their children’s educational freedom.

In the past, many states, like Montana, have enacted state constitutional amendments that have wrongly forbade Christian schools from receiving public education funds. According to the Supreme Court, three mothers were blocked by the Montana Department of “Revenue Rule 1” from using scholarship funds for their children’s tuition at Stillwater Christian School.

The parents sued the Department in state court, alleging that the Montana “Rule 1,” which “prohibited families from using the scholarships at religious schools discriminated on the basis of their religious views and the religious nature of the school they had chosen.”

Earlier the state’s legislature had created a program that granted tax credits to those who donate to organizations that award scholarships for private school tuition. Liberals in the state department of revenue created “Rule 1” to keep it consistent with the Montana Constitution that bars government aid to any school “controlled in whole or in part by any church, sect, or denomination.”

Writing for the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) majority, Chief Justice Roberts said,

“The application of the no-aid provision discriminated against religious schools and the families whose children attend or hope to attend them in violation of the Free Exercise Clause of the Federal Constitution.”
